Meet Sheweet

Assistant Dean, Adjunct Professor, and US Army Veteran

Starting her higher education journey at community college, Sheweet understands its role  in communities where access to  higher education is limited.

Born of immigrant parents starting a new life in the United States, Sheweet Yohannes wasn't afforded many opportunities to succeed in life.  Through  sheer determination and the availability of affordable higher education via community colleges and veteran assistance programs, Sheweet has worked her way to a seat at the table as a leader and instructor at Golden Gate University (GGU), a private, non-profit college aimed at educating working adults.

Over the past 10 years, Sheweet has dedicated her life to education in the forms of teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) abroad, mentoring students, offering college test prep courses, and, longest of all, working in higher education in multiple capacities.

As she has recently completed her second Master's degree while working full-time at Golden Gate University, Sheweet understands the concerns of the student, administrator, instructor, and leader as she has and continues to serve in these capacities at GGU.  Sheweet Yohannes will apply her skills and experience to project the Peralta Community College District forward during these ever-evolving times.
